Movie review: Star Wars: A New Hope

*A New Hope* runs very closely to the number one spot that *Empire Strikes Back* occupies in the SW oeuvre — clipping its heels, as it were. It started the whole mythology and adventure in a well told opening story. It’s almost perfect. But the “official” name, *A New Hope,* is just lame. This movie will always be *Star Wars* to me. (And here I show my age. Yes, I was 12 in the theaters for *Star Wars*, and waited in those huge lines to see it over and over again.)

Grade: A+
